International review of 'The Gleaming Clouds' by Murray Alfredson
Murray Alfredson's poetry makes you stop and think. Popular UK reviewer Valerie Penny agrees:
"When this anthology
first came to my attention, I had no idea what to expect from it.
Whatever it was the works far exceeded my expectations and I highly
recommend this collection of poems to poetry lovers everywhere.
I was excited and
amazed by the wide variety of styles of poetry: each at a thought
provoking level. The anthology displays a sound knowledge and
understanding of the important ideologies and beliefs of the world.
I was particularly interested by Isaac’s boyhood. It addresses issues that had concerned me and I was delighted to learn of someone else voicing the thoughts so eloquently.
Another poem that fascinated me was Bi- meets uni-polar. My cousin is bi-polar and I have lived with clinical depression for years. This poem aptly reflects many of our conversations!
I have already read and enjoyed The Sandwich several
times, on each occasion discovering new images, aspirations and
impressions. So few lines weave so detailed a pattern.
One of the translations he includes is Presence, one of my favourite Goethe poems. I enjoyed the translation, and the excuse to re-read the original."
